In the film, which will be released on June 17, “Sully” stars Dylan McDermott as a young boy who becomes an orphan when his family is forced to flee the Middle East in a fire.
“It’s such a powerful film, a beautiful film, and it’s really important to the people who were affected by the fire, that it’s in the public domain,” McDermott said.
“So people can watch it and it becomes part of our history.
And the film is not just a film about the fire.
It’s about the journey of a boy trying to make sense of the trauma of that day, and how much of it is in his head and how it’s shaped his life.”

The story of the fire is told through the eyes of McDermott’s character, but he is also an expert on the topic, having spent many years as an intern at the New York Fire Department.
“The fire was so traumatic and so horrible,” he told EW in a recent interview.
“I grew up in a family where it’s so much about fire.
I grew up watching fire and I’ve always been fascinated by fire.
So this film really brings it to life.”
McDermott has said that while he’s known about the importance of fire for fire victims since his youth, “there’s not a lot of fire movies in the history of fire and fire victims,” he said.
This film tells a different story about fire victims and their families.
“In a lot the films you see about fire, it’s usually about the bad guys, the good guys, and they’re doing the right thing, and the bad guy is the one who sets the fire and the good guy is trying to save it,” McDermot said.
McDermott is known for playing a variety of roles in films and TV, including “Captain America,” “Star Trek,” “Mister Rogers,” “The Simpsons,” and “Community.”
He recently played an undercover detective in “The X-Files” and also appeared in the film “The Hunt,” which also starred Michelle Williams.
